Greg Page Hospitalized

24.02.06 - LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Former WBA heavyweight champion Greg Page, who sustained brain damage during a 2001 fight, was hospitalized and in critical condition. The 47-year-old Page was transferred Friday to the intensive care unit at Jewish Hospital a day after being admitted, hospital officials said. He has acute respiratory failure, sepsis, hypothermia and seizures. "We are hopeful he will recover from this as well," said Page's wife, Patricia..

Page was left with brain injuries from his fight five years ago against Dale Crowe. He slipped into a coma, then had a stroke during post-fight surgery. He is paralyzed on his left side and uses a wheelchair.
